Her daughters, too, well tutored by her art, All unreluctant In her game take part; Or, weakly piastre, yield themselves to fate, Knowing full well resistance is too late. Thus are her victims to the altar led, With shining robes and flowers upon the head. There, at the holy shrine, 'mid sacred (1) vows, She fancies heaven will bless what earth allows, And sells her child to Mammon with a smile, While Mephlstophelcs approves the style I CLOT!

Clothed In white with blossoms In her hair, A maiden whom to love appeared a duty A spell around her hung; A sense of all that Nature makes most fair, That tilled with rapture all who watched her beauty, Or heard her silver tongue Clothed In white she heard the wedding chime, Blushing beneath her orange flowers, As her soft answer flows Like music, with no prescience of time When o'er life, which love so fondly dowers, The shadowy grave will close.

"UNCLE TOWS CABIN." How it Cante to be Written. Lowell (Kjr.) Cor. Courier Jxml. Two miles distant from this villasre. over among a groop of hills through which tised to wind the celebrated Crab Orchr.d pike of half a century ago, stands a lino old red-brick .mansion fac ing south and commanding a viow of miles upon miles of wavwiko hills and valley, ritty years ago it was tho plan tation of Gen. Thomas Kennedy, a Vir cinan, who fought t King's mountain with Marlon and came to Kentucky about 1780 to wrest the garden of tho central portion of the'Stato from tho In dians. Tho old red-brick liouso and tho ground all about it havo .lately becomo famous as being the lorlglnal scene in Mrs. Stowo'a novel of "Undo Tom's Cabin," Gen. Kennedy owned 7,000 acres of land, 150 slaves, and was en ormously wealthy for ithoso days. Ho was a man of wonderful icharactor and determination, a Black Douglass in tho Garrard hills. Ho was a tall, athletio and halo man, with the erect enrriago of an inman aud tne rutenoi a commander. Ho was, in the main, :a man of fair im pulse and royal generosity when calm; but, when angered, ho was Insatiably cruel to his slaves. Gen. Kennedy died in 1836, and left tho bulk of his prop perty to ids son Thomas, then about 20 years old. In three Tears ttlie young man had run through snore than a great fortune, and was dead rat tho very outset of his career. Among the slaves left In 'his estate was nn intelligent, hlgh-struugoctoroouboy, named Lewis Clarke, who had been granted comparative freedom, in being allowed to travel about with an open pass, trading, woavlng and occupying himself as ho pleased, paying his imi.stur a certain sum every mouth. When the estate camo to bo settled, it was discov ered that somo of tho slaves must ho sold, aud an execution ,was issued against Lowis among thu others. Tho rumor got out and at that .day tho ru mor was a dreadful one among si uvea that tlioy wcro tobo "sold down South." On thdlllrst night of tho September! court Irll841, Lowis ClJrko mounted his pony' jksA. struokfjitllborty. Iuyroij) mCr'wl over the hills to Ohio and to Cuuada? Then he .went to Cambridge, Mass., lived for 6cv,oji years with A. II. Saflovd, a brother-in-law of 3Irs. Harriet Ueeohor Stowo. Mrs. fitowo visited her relatives overy sum mer, and took u deep Interest lu Lowis Clarko, ills experience and Ids narrative oi incidents, paiiiuuu, uuiiiuiuiiti una torrlblo, of slave llfo, and thti iionprs which tlio system nu-ulo possible, and which wore, in locality's, frequent from brutal and irrcsponslblo masters,. From Lewis Clarke's own lips I gath ered, tho'story of how Mni. Stowo ciuae o'writo "Undo Tom's Cabin," Dr. llalloy, who published tho Philanthro pist in Cincinnati, had been persuaded to moyo to Washington city about 1818 or 1850, where ho established an eman cipationist organ, tlio National Era, Ho thought if ho could gottomo woman of literary reputation nnd ability to write a series of nrtldos for his paper ovcry week on tho sublcot of slavey and its violation 01 01 mo nnest sonumonu, that It would ruvivo public interest and carry his papof to pcoplo It had never reached before. The names of Mrs. Lyttla M. Child and others were propos- .1 t...t r cu, uub nub mjuufjuju. uuwia jluijjjuu, who was ono of tho counselors, finally said ho know of ono woman who could do tho work successfully, that sho was poor and must bo paid for it, but that sho would succeed. Ho thon'mcntioncd Mrs. Stowc, and advised Dr. llalloy to write to her, and, by way of earnest, in closed her a draft for $100. Tho letter was written and tho draft sent. Tho r.cxt week there appeared in tho columns of tho National Era, not tho first of a scries of articles on slavery, but tho first chapters of a story called "Undo Tom, a Cabin." Tho circulation of tho National lira increased at once, and soon became very large. Mrs. Stowo was poor and and earning her money so laboriously that, for fear tho great novel would bo cut short, sho was sont an additional draft for $300. Then sho copyrighted tho story, which in bcok form has mado her a fortune, and becomo mora famous than any novel over issued from a print ing press. Savannah's t'emctrey. Courier-Journal, No ono should como to Ravennali without seeing Bonavcnturo. This was th of Commodore Tatnall; it is now a cemetery. Tho old Commodore was a man of strong pecu liarities, and many anecdotes are told of htm. Ho had Invited a number of friends to dine, and just at tho time th tablo was set it was discovered tho man slon was on firo. Littlo could bo dono to save it, tuvl it was almost entirely de stroyed. When tho oxcltcment was over tho Commodore ordered tho tablo to bo spread on tho lawn, as ho would not havo a dinner party scattered by tho burning of his house. Even tho most unimaginative tiullviu nual must bo impressed as ho passes down theso long avenues of livo oaks, with their far-spreading brandies draped with moss, forming tho most exquisite festoons nature over makes. Theso groves are wido and long. It Is said theso oaks, over 100 years old wcro planted in tho form of tho mon ogram of tho Tatnall family. If so all tho letters havo been lost in time except the letter T. Tho oaks aro immense, and it seems as if you'wero passing down tho aisle of some grand cathedral. It is tho poetic supposition that Gothic architecture owes its orlzin to tho fact that early builders copied their deco j-ations from tho forests In which they dwollt, thus given us tho pointed arches and tho groins of the vaulted roof. In Bonavcnturo this belief amounts almost to a demonstration; architecture may imitate, but cannot surpass tho inter laced branches of these old oaks; while no artist could ever hopo to equal the grace, delicacy and beauty of tho moss which hangs from all their branches, The whole cllect is impressive, and a tho light fades these shapes becomo a antestic as any which havo haunted tho mind of Gustavo Doro as lie pomler do tho story of tho Wandcrlnjr Jew or llustrated tho verso of Dante. What Is Nickle Since tho convenient live-cent coin which in common talk is called "a nickel," lias como into general clrculao lion, tho qucsslon abovo is asked cither mentally or orally huri'loth of time evory day, aud butfewgotanintelligant answer. In China and India, a white copper, called pack tong, has long been known, and has beon extensively used both there and in Europo for country felting silver coin. About thoyearlTOO a peculiar oro was dlseoverod in the copper mines of Saxony, which had tho appcranco of bolng very rich, but in semelting it yielded no copper, and tho minors called it kupfer-nickle, or f ales copper. In 1754, Constadt announced the discovery of a new metnl in kepfer nickel, to which he gave tho nanio of nickel. In was in combination with arsenic, from which ho could relief it only in part. Tho alloy of 'nickel and arsenic which he obtained was white, brittle and hard, and had a malting point nearlp as high as cast Iran. It was not until 1823 that pure .nickel was obtained by analysis of Gorman silver, which had for a number of years been product at Suhl, in Saxony, Its com position was ascertained to be copper'10 parts, zlno 6 and nickel 4.. If mora nickel be used the alloy is as white as silvor and susceptible of a Tery high polish, but decomes to brittle .and hard to bo hammered or rolled, and can bo worked only by casting. P.uro nh Wo is a white metal which tarnishes readily in tho air. Unliko silver, it is mot actjd on by the vapor of sulphur, ;and mven tho strong mineral acids attract it but stlghtly. Nickel has tho hardness cf iron, and, llko it has strong mrf-iutlo proportlest, but cannot bo wilder and lo soldered with dinieulty. tfuro nickel has heretofore been used -chief Is" Vol" plating, for which purposo its hnrdnAss and power to resist utmoeplitf'ia inrY enco admlrrblo adept it.

Tho builder selects snow of the proper consistency by sounblng a drift with a cane made for the pnrpnso, of reindeer horn, straightened by stenming, and worked down to about half an inch In diameter, witn n ferule of walrus tusk or tho tooth of a bear on the bottom, llv thrusting this Into the snow ho can tell whether the layers deposited by succes sive winds aro separated by bands of soft snow, which woulo cause the blocks to break. When tho snow is selected ho digs a pit to tho depth of eighteen inches or two feet, or about tho length of thu snow block. He then steps into tho pit and proceeds to cut out the blocks, by first cutting pown at tho end of tho pit and then at the bottom afterwards, cut ting a littlo chanuelnbout an inch or two deep nicking tho thickness of tho pro posed block. Now comes the part that requires praetico to accomplish successfully. The ezpert will, with a few thrusts of his knife in iu.st the right places, split oil' tho snow-bloeks and lift it carefully out to await removal to its position on tlio wall. Tho tyro will almost inevitably brhak the block In two or three pieces utterly unfit for tho uso of tho builder. When two men nro building nn igloo. ono cuts tho blocks aud tho other erects the wall. When sufficient blocks havo been cut out to commence work with, the builder murks with his oyo or per haps draws a line with his knlfo dlserl blng tho circumference of tho building, nstially a circle about ten or twelve feet in diameter. Tho' first row of blocks is then aranged, the blocks placed so as to incline inward and resting against which softened their otherwise too rug ged nature.

From Bcrlbner for July. Co-opkiution in production Is rcpubll canlsmor democracy applied to industry. It Is n question which somo will answer ono way and somo another, whether a a ucmocratio-ropuDiio is a good organ izatlon for industry or not. Experience. up to this time, bears with a heavy preponderance in tavor oi tne negative. Tho economic elements of gain In co operative workshops havo never been dclincd iv anyuody, ami aro not appar ent. There aro oven great difficulties in tho definition, so soon as anything more is intended than n joint-stock company, in which tho capital Is largely held by tho workmen employed by It. II ono hundred men want to start a workshop, there issomosultablo amount of canit il. f av ten thousand dollars, winch oncliundrcd men at that business need to keen them employed. Theso ono hun drcd men can, only in the single and most exceptional case, havo lust that amount. If they havo more, they must biro somo men, who may not uc co-operators, to work up that capital. If they havo less than that amount of capital, thev must sell shares to somo who arc not workmen. Therefore, in all but tho most ccscntioual cases, tho cstnb lishmcnt is simply llko ono of our East ern cotton mills, in which tho C'litc of tho workpeople aro often stockholders i.e.. simply n loInUtock company. Tlio constant difficulty of co-operatlvo pro duction arises, of course, from tho need of very complete concord and accord among n largo number of per sons, nnd that is tho hardest thing on earth to bring about. We mutt give a paragraph also to a warning against tno delusions oi co-operative insurance. This lias becomo very popular In this country, and exists farm-ire vtl.lclv than any other appli cation of co-operation. Somo of tho States havo recently been legislating about It. Why Is it believed that the great insurance companies keep largo reserves? Why is it supposed that stringent laws "have been passed nnd close inspection hns been established for those companies? unviousiy it is becnuso life insurance is not true or sound except- under strict conditions which are capable of mathematical com putation. Tho co-operative-insurance societies nro cheaper, because they are outside of legal restraint, and nro viola- ting all tho necessary limitations mid burdens of sound business.

In order that tlio publio may know tho financial standing nnd condition of corporations proposing to furnish in surance, tho law-making power of tho Stato lias wisely provided that certain statements under oath shall bo mado to tho Auditor of Stato. Theso exhibits furnish data from which to concludo as to tho responsibility and safety of tho company which proposts to issue its policies and receive its premiums. Al though tho law regulating theso mat ters has been for years in operation, and supposed to bo fully understood, especially by insuranco companies, yet It appears that tho Auditor of Stato has found it necessary to supplement his insurance report for 1881, oy tho inser tion of tho following notes. Btatb or Iowa, Orricit or Auditoh, I Des Moines, May ID, 1881. ( '.'Slnco this report was put into type, an opinion from tho Attorney-General has been received, in which is decided tho meaning of 1186 of tho Code. In that opinion it is held that tho re-Insurance fund shall bo calculated upon the gross amount of premiums received, nnd not upon the unearned premiums. Therefore, tho report of tho Farmers' Firo Insuranco Company, and tho Cedar Ilaplds Firo Insuranco Company, both of Cedar Ilaplds, as published elsewhere In this report, nro wrong as to their net surplus. Tho Farmers' has $27,802.79 surplus Instead of $!)l,74.1.22, as reported. Tho Cedar Itapids has $28,005.83 surplus, instead of $38,002.91, us re ported. A foot-note with tablo No. 1 calls at tention to tho manner of their calcula tion. Respectfully, W. V. Lucas. Auditor of Stato. An evasion of tho law is no more to bo excused in a corporation tl 'i whan re sorted to by nn individual, and there enn bo no excuso for tho Cedar Itapids Companies to cvndo the law. Any method of calculation tho result o'f which Is apparently to increase the assets of a company is an imposition upon tlio public, nnd is deserving of tho severest censure. If an insurance com pany is not sufficiently strong to stand upon its merits and a strict construc tion of tho facts, the sooner it goes to tho wall tho better. Iowa with her boundless prosperity and resources does not wish to foster liny but legitimate and deserving enterprises. It would seem that it was scarcely necessary to requlro a formal opinion of tho legal officer of tho Stato to decide a matter heretofore so uniformly understood by all insurance companies doing business in this State, as "that the rc-Tti sura tic c fund shall bo calculated upon the gross amount of premiums recieved, and not upon tho unearned premiums." The law was enacted for the protection of the public against frndulcnt companies, and any attempts to practice upon tho "resumed gullibility of the people should be exposed. The Auditor of Stato lias very properly culled attention to the cases above referred to.
